Such an inconsequential event - the unfortunate purchase of a package of cling film - reveals the character and behavior of a small group of individuals caught up in the chaos of today's society. Though it creates arguments and inner questioning, this event - and its various consequences - also creates bonds.
Rachel, shy little 9 year old, loved by her father and stifled by a possessive mother, meets Valérie, a fearless and shameless girl of her age. With her new friend, she engages to profanity, indecency and nonsense, and opens up to life.
A sweet movie that touches hearts of people who like to dream
As French movie makers really don't need US movies to copy their stories, this movie doesn't just reflect one parent-kid-relation, which might be the most wanted and most treated subject of US movies (which therefore I find boring so I don't watch them if not, sometimes, for the actors/actresses involved) ... This brilliant movie is a story about the sweetness of childhood, against and through all bad that might interfere from the world of adults. Children's life in fact can, or should, be as serious as a game, as most adults forget once they passed the line to adultness. Pascal Thomas created a sweet fairy tale about a happy summer's day, combining the convincing play of Vincent Lindon, Alessandra Martines and more great french actors with the beautiful site of Nantes, introducing great acting talent Victoria Lafaurie and other promising young actresses. This is a movie that will touch all those who'd like to dream about a life far from responsibilities as we had (or should have had) as children.
